and senator john kerry who chairs the senate committee on foreign relations is considered a contender and although that would leave an open senate seat for the democrats, that may not be a dealbreaker. >> in their favor this election, they had elbow room by the number of seats they won and many thought they wouldn't win, have that two-vote majority so maybe the president is willing to take a chance. >>guest: last time it was left open by the death of senator kennedy it went to a republican who was defied on tuesday. over two term presidencies over world war ii it is rare if any cabinet secretary to stick around for all eight years. >>shepard: it has been. urgent economic matters out there. what kind of effect does that have on the shuffle? >>guest: there is a feeling in washington that geithner would prefer to leave sooner rather than later but with shes of expiring tax cuts and sequestration whomming he is -- looming he is likely to stick around because he is invested in the negotiations that have been going on. >> that would be true of defense secretary panetta. he has fought hard a

the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing i would say is having the economy kind o
in the second obama term? yeah, probably. according to the washington post, senator john kerry is in line to replace panetta at defense and susan rice could be the next secretary of state. rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations who five days after the attack in benghazi went on all the morning shows on sundays and blamed the violence on a movie. we of course know it was a planned terrorist attack. we since learned that the obama administration knew at that point as well. we're talking about that in just a few minutes. >>> first to the big board, we have now turned positive this tuesday morning, up, but not much. up 11. here is our company: david asman joins us. charles payne is here. nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole, start with home depot. now, that's up big, and i want to know why. nicole: home depot is doing really well. the best performer in the dow jones industrials. up over 4 1/2%. they came out with earnings per share and revenue that were better. they have good outlook and said that sandy, the preparations for hurricane sandy and the af
demographic. i don't believe for one minute that john kerry would have had the same appeal in the way coming in two successful elections, that obama had. i agree that there are probably some big issues that need to be dealt with in a different way with certain portions of the electorate. i believe we had a fourth candidate. new sod jolt benisons analysis of the election. soft underbelly was the people did not trust him. they did not know what you believe it. conservatives did not know what to believe. you had a guy running for president and it was not until the tail and that the conservatives came home hard for romney as romney and not just being against obama. politics is a lot more dynamic. remember, two years ago, we had a huge republican wave. as you look of the way at least congressional districts are locked bin for the foreseeable future, you have a lot of bleeding out of redistricting that happened, but you have a lot of members who were in republican districts where they are locked in where they are pretty white and locked in and they have quadra is back at home that favor them. some

kerr gee a better choice for secretary of state and if john kerry is, then that could be really good news for scott brown because if john kerry left as senator of massachusetts, there would be a special election. scott brown would most probably be favored. of course, he was beaten by elizabeth warren a couple days ago. >> brian: i have a better idea for him. colin powell. he's obviously a fan, knows his stuff. colin powell is obviously a supporter. it seems to be a good indication of reaching across the aisle. >> steve: maybe. >> brian: 24 minutes before the top of the hour. last night dennis miller did his normal stint on bill o'reilly. he had a different take, speaking from the heart rather than the sense of humor portion of plains. listen. >> the election, i think this is where this country is at right now. i don't know everybody else's political predirection. yesterday some people think this was the best day america ever had. its proudest moment. i don't agree. i know i'm going to be the object of readvantage now, but i'm not going to back off it. i like a country where people bu
for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups that they made in november it's not going to be -- on election day it's knots going to be a question of control of the senate one way or the other so they might be willing to give up that seat potentially to scott brown who might come back in another special election. martha: they have a little bit of a cushion now which gives them a little bit of flexibility on john terry as you point out. in terms of the attorney general position, obviously heale obvious obviously eric holder has been through the ringer in the last four years. i don't think anyone would be some surprised to see him step down. any thoughts on who would replace him in he did? >> one of the people who is being mentioned and again we don't know how serious that is is janet napolitano, secretary of homeland security. she really apparently would
. bush defeated john kerry, killed with recrimination and remorse. what could we have done. all of that is healthy ultimately. but that should not be interpreted by this president as a foundation of his strength or source of republican weakness. it is a process of rebuilding strength. as we look at what he said today, he said he wants to talk about balance. but didn't talk about spending cuts. all of these -- more than 20 new taxes will not amount to the same amount of money. it will be about 60% of the total deficit. that's wait amounts to. so it's going to have to be what the president alluded to vaguely as balance, and whatever they agree to. there will have to be sharp, tough decisions on what will be cut in this federal budget. it's unsustainable. one thing that cheers me and should cheer everyone concerned about responsible fiscal policy is that this president doesn't have any choice. by the way, ultimately neither does baron or mcconnell. we are watching all of the prolific spending, the irresponsibility come crashing down around our heads. the markets cannot suffer much
with her, whether or not that's over. then the other one, of course, is john kerry of massachusetts. the problem is if you pull kerry down from massachusetts, there is a guy walking around massachusetts right now who would like a senate seat, right? you could totally end up with a situation of him running again? any sense of how the president might negotiate that decision? >> no sense at all. you know, kerry has been widely known to covet this job for a long time. speaking for myself, i always thought he would make a fine secretary of state. in the old-fashioned sense of who would do a good job, this is someone i think who showed us when he was a presidential candidate in the senate, he would be a wonderful secretary of state. but you create this political problem. we've seen how one vote in the senate can make such a difference. it's hard to know how to solve it. >> the speech to the dnc felt like an audition. it looks like holder will probably leave the attorney general position, although i have great imaginings of him running like a voter suppression, voter rights thing. >> looki
impact that. a number of sources saying she is the president's top contender for that post. senator john kerry obviously seen as a potential contender for that lot because of his work in the senate on foreign policy in those issues. for right now it looks like rice is much closer to getting the nod. connell: the issues that will come up. benghazi is one of them. the impact does will have on the president's decisions. >> in absolutely the fiscal cliff. issues about the inspiring tax cuts, sequestration, the impact. there ben vaults for years. some will be likely to walk away. leon panetta has been very vocal about his concerns about health sequestration could impact that pentagon. because of that, that will keep him in place. >> that would beecher defense secretary leon panetta. he has fought hard against sequestration because he did not want to see the types of cuts that sequestration calls for for the defense department. he is going to see that through. >> keep in mind, he probably has the toughest and most expensive commute which taxpayers are paying for going back and forth between th
should bring john kerry in to. >> caller: to talk about iraq? i'm sure no one did. they didn't even ask al gore, who won the popular vote. >> stephanie: that's what drives me insane. that's the premise. >> caller: you have to watch out every time david gregory says just one more thing. the next question is going to be a barrel full of stupid. my favorite was the brown-warren debate and i emblazoned this question on my mind so i would never forget. we have only five minutes left, let's deal with some other issues. what about afghanistan. after spending 20 minutes on something that may have been or not have been on her job application. oh, oh by the way, the war we're having, what do you think. >> president johnson, do you see a role for senator goldwater in your administration. >> caller: whoever asked that. whoever asked that would get halfway through the question and lyndon would have his peculiar pecker on thatthat in his pocket. >> stephanie: now we have to go. >> caller: now make sure that your little petraeus is behaving behaving. >> we'll talk with charlie about that next week. >
interesting watching all of this move around. senator john kerry for the past month or so, there's been a lot of buzz about him, perhaps as secretary of state, that he was interested in that. it sounds like the president may have other plans for him. >> reporter: yes, possibly defense secretary. kerry is a navy veteran and he was very involved in the president's re-election effort. kerry played governor mitt romney in the president's debate prep. his name had been floated as secretary of state. but if ambassador rice gets tapped for that job the post reports that senator kerry may get the nod to the pentagon. kerry's o*fs will say that quote senator kerry's only focus is as senior senator from massachusetts. leon panetta says he's focusing on looming se sequestration defense and budget cuts and other defense challenges. he also says it's no secret that he wants to get back to his private life in california. martha. martha: we will see. molly, thank you very much. bill: if you had a vineyard in california -- judge you'd want to get back there too. bill: you'd probably be daydreaming about it a
